DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW
LP / CD / DIGITAL WORLD WIDE
Spotify / TIDAL / iTunes / Bandcamp / Tiger / Amazon
Evig Lyttar (NO) 4.5/5 : SIBIIR sets a new standard for dark and brutal hardcore with their debut album.
The Metal Gods Meltdown (UK) 9/10 : These Norwegians have something special here ...
Metal Hammer (UK) 7/10 : It's an explosive, eclectic and often exciting listen [...] a strong opening statement from a band with plenty to say.
Metal Hammer (NO) 9/10 : What a debut! [...] This album is the very manifestation of the quality of the Norwegian underground.
Punktastic (UK) : There are plenty of bands out there peddling 'blackened' variations of each of these sub-genres, but I struggle to recall any who have married all of them together so convincingly as SIBIIR.
Echoes and Dust (UK): ...an absolute cracker.
Terrorizer Magazine (UK) : ...a savage 10-track effort that sees the group merging the aggresion and fury of hardcore with a dash of black metal vitriol.
OxFanzine (DE) 8/10 : something something german
Rock Tribune Magazine (BE) 7.5/10 : A genre crossing sledgehammer from a new and creative band with heaps of potensial which will appear more than once on your radar in the future.
New Noise Magazine (US) 3.5/5 : ...the group know how to craft blackened metalcore of the highest order ...
ninehertz (UK) : ...this is an excellent release, one which should elevate them alongside their European peers within the darker realms of hardcore.
Noizze (UK) : This impressive, surprising album is a strong contender for for a late entry on this reviewer's end of year list.
Musikknyheter (NO) 8/10 : SIBIIR is Kvelertak with a heavy dose of testosterone and plenty of hair on their balls!
GAFFA (NO) 5/6 : It's not easy to be charming while singing you want to bash people's faces in with a baseball bat, but SIBIIR pulls it off.
iTromsö (NO) 5/6 : Cold as f**k! The Spiral and White Noise are two of the best songs I've heard this year.
Lords of Metal (NL) 85/100 : Holy f**king shit, this band is cool!
UNpure (IT) 8.5/10 : An explosive debut [...] we recommend everyone a trip in this dark, cold and violent universe.
Pildoras Musicales (ES) 8/10 : something something spanish
Zephyr's Odem (DE) 8/10 : something something german
World of Metal (PT) 8/10 : something something portuguese
Les Eternels (FR) 16/20: something something french
The Independent Voice (UK) 4.5/5 : ...what an album, I love it on all levels!
Battle Helm Magazine (US) 4/5 : ...this stunning debut may stand apart from the commoner styles associated with Norway, but more importantly it sets a new standard. Ignore at your peril.
Rock n Reel Reviews (UK) 4/5 : It's good, there's no point in denying that ...
The Revival Music (UK) : This record is seriously good [...] it's f**king wonderful. It really is.
Cadaver Garden : This is violent, head caving music, and man what a great debut this record is.
Albacore (FR) : ...a solid masterpiece every fan of extreme music as a whole should possess.
